Health care Technology Assessment is a multidisciplinary field of policy analysis that studies the medical, social, ethical and economic implications of the development, diffusion and use of technologies. For some NCDs, external TAs are requested through the Agency for Health Research and Quality (AHRQ).
A description of the TA process and guiding principles for selecting which topics are referred for external TA assistance can be found here.
